Atlanta Braves Avoid Arbitration With Jair Jurrjens And Martin Prado

Today is the final day for abitration figures to be submitted. Teams and players will either settle on a number or go to an arbitration hearing, which is considered a no-no. The Braves entered the day with four arbitration eligible players, and so far two have re-signed.

Per Ken Rosenthal, the Braves have come to terms on a one-year deal with Jair Jurrjens worth $3.25 million. His salary last season was $480,000, so it's a nice raise for the starter. This was the first arbitration eligible year for Jurrjens.

Per David O'Brien, the Braves have come to terms on a one-year deal with Martin Prado worth $3.1 million. It is also his first eligible year, and his raise is pretty high after a salary of $440,000 last season.

The two remaining players that are arbitration eligible are Peter Moylan and Eric O'Flaherty. We'll update and give you figures as soon as any news comes in.
